I was always a very active kid, I liked running around and just having fun. So in grade seven a couple of friends told me to do track and field because they thought I was a fast sprinter, but I didn't really believe them until I tried out for the team and made a spot for the 100 meter sprint and the 4x100 meter relay sprint. On the race day I ran the 100 meter race and came second with a time of 13.10 seconds. I was proud of my time and place because it was the very first official race that I ran in. As for the relay race we came first with a couple of seconds to spare.
The refs then said we have ten minutes to warm up; we usually had thirty. I did not feel ready or stretched at all. The game started and brought the intensity right with it. There was this one player; he was quick on his feet and danced over the ball, constantly tricking his opponents. I was assigned to man-mark him, and I can remember replaying the words in my head “ don’t let him get around you”.
“White is a sinewy 19-year-old with California charisma and a shock of red hair, which partly accounts for his nickname the “Flying Tomato. He is also snowboarding’s biggest mainstream star, and a winner of four gold medals at the Winter X Games. He began wearing a helmet a decade ago and became an instant pariah” (Higgins 1). The United States does not have laws for helmet use and resorts only recommend them, even professional contests don’t leave the choice to the rider(Higgins 1). Todd Richards a professional for more then ten years, wore a helmet in the 80s at his first competition (“Higgins 1”).
This success makes him the first ever person who captures the consecutive victories. The battle between David Pearson and Richard Petty in the year 1976 also carried with it a hallmark of the most exciting race. In that particular race, Petty was leading the contest, as soon as he tried to pass the person from beneath, the Petty car struck the Pearson car, and both of them reeled out into the grass field. Pearson gets his car started and finished the race, with his vehicle hobbling over the finish line. Daytona 500 declared as the national sport, in the year 1979, when it for the first time telecasted on national
They showed this to me and I instantly got so excited. I could be in the Olympics. The tryouts started in November, meaning that I only had a few months to train for the tryouts. These few months were the hardest months of my life. I was constantly training on the slopes, working out everyday, and eating right everyday.
The road to glory started in Pierre, South Dakota. Where Berent, Cael, Trevor, Xavier, and I drove up to play for the state cup. The rest of the team was with their parents but we decided to carpool to save money. We were all joking around until we figured out that we were going to play the older tempo team, Tempo Blaze. At first, we thought that this would be a sweep, that we would win the whole tournament without worrying, but know we have to play the team that has never lost this year and we have never beaten for as long as we have lived.
Then my parents gave me a Brett Favre number four Vikings jersey it was awesome and even better my step dad got a matching one. Ever since this trip my family and I have gone to Disney every year after. my parents got married July 16, 2011 and have been married since then. This was the most meaningful trip I have ever taken, and I all never forget this trip I took with my
They’re in front of the station so they pull in and park right in front of the door and they wait for the officer to pull up. They can see his cruiser park right next to theirs so they all get out and walk along with the officer into the station. Soon as they walk in a group of parents run to them and start screaming “WHERES MY SON- MY DAUGHTER IS SHE OK-” and etc. The officer tries to calm them all down when a grown man runs up to Dante’s dad punches him knocking him to the ground and mounts him, yelling ”YOU SON OF A BITCH IF MY SON IS HURT
We found Estephanie and saw all our other classmates. We decided to split up into different groups as some wanted to go on rides and some do not. The three of us decided to ride Big Thunder Mountain. When we got on the ride, it started of slow and gradually became faster. I can feel the wind blowing in my face and screams could be heard from other people on the ride.
One memorable event in my life that I will always cherish in my heart was in springbreak 2015 when i went to my first U.M.E concert. That was a time of my life wheir I just let loose and forgot about all my problems.
